KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: New Singer Will Enable Us To Grow

July 10, 2002

New KILLSWITCH ENGAGE frontman Howard Jones (formerly of Connecticut-based BLOOD HAS BEEN SHED) has stated the following regarding his new band:

"I had heard that things were up in the air with [former frontman] Jesse [Leach] so after a lot of tossing and turning at night I gave the guys a call. It really clicked with the other guys and it was apparent right away how well this could work out. I can't wait to put my own stamp on this band. I'm amped.”

Guitarist Joe Stroetzel added, "We picked a singer that will enable us to grow as a band. That was the most important thing to us.”

"We're very, very excited about having Howard in the band," stated bassist Mike D'Antonio. "Things have happened very quickly, but have really worked out for the best."
